Jim and Loretta Beuter of Perry celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary Wednesday over lunch with friends at the Hotel Pattee.
Jim worked for many years with FS Agriservices.
“In those days I knew every farmer in the county,” he said.
Loretta was a school teacher at St. Patrick’s School and in the Perry Community School District.
They were joined at lunch by their fellow Bible study students, Myrna Mino Smith of Perry, Kathy Wade of Granger, Jim Archer of Perry and Michael and Diane Caufield of Dallas Center.
